Pacific Coast Terminals (PCT), located in Port Moody, British Columbia, has won a prestigious International Bulk Journal (IBJ) Award which recognizes achievements by individuals and companies that improve and enhance efficiency, safety and environment protection at bulk terminals around the world.

PCT has been awarded the 2017 Safety in Bulk Handling Award for their leadership and effective management of safety programs that have produced the lowest accident frequency and severity statistics than any other terminal in the Port of Vancouver.

“I speak for everyone at PCT when I said that we are honoured to even be considered for such an important award,” said Wade Leslie, Vice President and General Manager of Pacific Coast Terminals. “Safety is a responsibility for everyone at PCT and we have made it our culture to ensure not only a safe workplace, but also that the philosophy of safety is taken home with our employees.  As a result, our efforts to exceed industry standards have enabled PCT to be the only two-time recipient of this award.”

Pacific Coast Terminals specializes in the handling of bulk solid sulphur, liquid glycol, canola, and as of just recently, potash. PCT has handled over 4 million tonnes of sulphur on an annual basis making it one of the world’s largest sulphur export facilities. Their operations have been acknowledged in the past with awards for environmental protection initiatives and nominations in various categories.

Representatives from PCT attended the black-tie awards gala on November 13th at the Beurs Van Berlage, Amsterdam.
